Declining rate of women in leadership positions
The number of women chief executives among ASX 200 companies is falling, as progress in appointing women to senior executive roles in corporate Australia is slowing, according to a survey by Chief Executive Women.
- Around 60 per cent of university graduates in Australia are women but only 6 per cent of chief executives are women.
- Only 6 per cent of chief executives among ASX 200 companies this year are women, down from 7 per cent last year
- More than 50 per cent of ASX 200 companies still have no women at all in executive line management roles
